Google ChromeBrowser compatibility•Windows, Mac OS X, and LinuxDesign and ease of use•Chrome has a lean address bar configuration, stripping everything down into a simple tab layout and address bar configuration that also doubles as a search bar Google calls the “Omnibox.”•Adjacent to the omnibox is Chrome’s simple standard navigational features (i.e. back, forward, refresh, home) by default, but you can easily slim down the window by customizing the toolbar and deleting any buttons you deem pointless.•Chrome’s single-click bookmarking method, done by simply clicking the star located on the right side of the address bar, also makes bookmarking your favorite webpages a breeze and hassle-free experience.source:
Extras•Chrome differentiates itself through its constant updates, but also through its extensive Web Apps Store, which offers apps that blur the line between Web and local apps in some unique ways.•Chrome remains the most integrated software for accessing anything Google related (i.e. Gmail, Google Drive).Privacy and Security•Chrome’s reputation for protecting users’ security and privacy credentials is spotty at best.•Chrome takes security a bit further by also scanning for potentially harmful downloads.source:
Mozilla FirefoxDesign and ease of use•This browser features a similar, yet more useful layout when compared to its competitors, placing the tab bar above the address bar.•Despite reaching version 40 of the software, it still feels like the bulky predecessors of the software, refusing to unite the address and search bars in a single unified field like all of its peers.•However, this is more of an aesthetic issue than a functional one — you can search within the address bar or the accompanying search bar to its right.•The browser offers the same kind of single-click bookmarking that Chrome does — all you have to do is click the star located to the right of the search bar — but there isn’t much else that separates it from the rest of the pack.source:
•The settings menu is accessible in a similar fashion to that of Google Chrome, allowing you to access various options by clicking a simple button depicting three horizontal bars located in the upper-right corner of the window.
